This is my incredible editorial photoshoot held at Belvoir castle. The client brief was pretty relaxed and open but in essence to capture the strong and luxury element of the Kuku connect and Kuku creative businesses and brand. To strongly promote the environment and collaboration between the luxury heritage brand of Belvoir Castle and Kuku and to promote their up and coming event together to be held at the castle. This event which would incorporate a large proportion of Kuku’s client base and also to include members of their multiple location networking company.
This editorial style photoshoot with Kuku Connect, Philip Brooks-Stephenson, FCMI, MCIPR, MInstF, AMBCS and Stephen Goddard https://lnkd.in/ehSNHSM was discussed weeks in advance and including wardrobe/ garment style direction in association with Suzanne Suthers, Suzanne Suthers Style Consultancy, Colour Consultant & Personal Stylist Nottingham.
With many prestigious venues you sit on ‘standby’ until the very last minute and have to reschedule to meet their opportunity windows.
Arriving on site and driving up to the castle and casually getting out of the car alongside, felt hugely surreal. The photographs we captured here, many are taken in privileged use and exclusive areas and taking images we found ourselves whispering for no apparent reason.
These images were made carefully under the castle permissions and in line with the clients brand values. The images also feature in the client’s printed Almanac and helped support a fantastic evening in which over 250 businesses attended. Very well done to both Stephen and Philip for hosting another ground breaking birthday party and networking event!
